Twitter Snippets (19~21 May 2017) - Color-Changing Synchronica's Screenshot Quiz of Ruin

Following up from last week's Synchronica screenshot quiz on Twitter, a new guess-the-song round for May 25th's new releases has been made, once again featuring rosy-inspired backgrounds and different Taiko no Tatsujin guessing alternatives to choose from.

If you want to play along before knowing the name of the next Taiko-related song to be ported into the series, here are the four-option vote guesses that have been listed in another tweet:
  • Sacred Ruin
  • Blue Rose Ruin
  • Yuugao no Kimi
  • Inu no Omawari-san

Sympho-Neighbours - When Two Worlds Collide / Rhythm Game Version

This is a continuation to another feature we've had last year (link), but while the former was focused on collaborative efforts that could cater to a wider public through the magic of pop culture, this Sympho-Neighbours page is for all those hardcore music players that would love to see some of their favorite series get along with other parties in foreign field, be it for mere song sharing or something a little bit more expansive...

Before we started conceiving the idea of a collaborative network of rhythm games since the Tenkaichi Otogesai's inception (and even after!), here are some of the most remarkable get-along parades between different franchises in recent history.

Twitter Snippets (18-19 May 2017) - The Great Post-Update Artists Round-Up

Between yesterday and today, there have been lots of composers chiming in the official Taiko Team's Twitter feed, being related to either yesterday's original song lot announcement or other future-related means.

If you want a quick refresher of the songs, you can check the newly published "Summer '17" version of the Medley for the Busy People that the Team posted on Youtube alongside the other song previews, but after that... see you after the jump!
